Why I still use checks!
With all the options available to you today to make payments, you might not think about using checks. I use these too – but I find I still pull out my checkbook at least a couple times a month to make a payment. Here are some expenses I still use write checks for:
- Babysitting. I might not always have exact cash available, so I often write my sitter a check.
- School expenses. I’ve written a few checks so far this year for field trips, school pictures, and other school-related expenses.
- Gifts. We sometimes tuck a check in a graduation or wedding card.
- Licenses & fees. I often pay business license renewals or tab fees by check.
If you’re thinking right about now that having a few checks handy wouldn’t be a bad idea, check out Checks in the Mail. They have tons of check design options you can easily personalize and very reasonable prices. Right now, new customers can save 60% off a first order of personal checks with code GET60. I found checks as low as $11.35 shipped after this promotion! In some cases, this may be cheaper than ordering through your bank.
Let us know if you’re one of the lucky ones to receive a $100 check in your ValPak!
